Kestrel Autumn Edition

Kestrel Autumn Edition

Students at King Edward’s Witley are celebrating their GCSE results this year. Almost all pupils (95.5%) at the mixed ability day and boarding school achieved five A*-C grades which sets them up for further study at A-level or the International Baccalaureate.

Personal triumphs included Surrey pupils Izzy Watson from Godalming (8A*, 1A, 1B) and Tom Martis-Jones from Kingston (6A*, 4A). Tom commented, “I am surprised and absolutely delighted, I’m off to celebrate and will be back in September!”

Commenting on the results, the Headmaster, John Attwater, says:  “It is really gratifying once again to see pupils of a range of abilities and talents fulfilling their potential and in many cases exceeding expectations, thanks to a lot of hard work and excellent teaching. Naturally, exams are not the only measure of a good education, but they are important indicators of progress and our students can certainly be very proud of what they have achieved.”
